Dear Listener,

Twilight Whispers was a challenge for me. At the time I wrote it—1987—I wanted to push myself as a writer. The result: a book that was longer and more complex than anything I had written before then. In many respects, it is my first mainstream novel.

Here is the story of three families: the Warrens and the Whytes, wealthy, powerful, and connected by the marriage of Deborah Warren and Mark Whyte; and the not-so-wealthy Morells—Cassie, the loyal housekeeper for the Warrens, and her daughter, Katia, who grew up with and adores the Warren and Whyte children.

The story opens with the funeral of Deborah and Mark, who have been murdered. In the course of his investigation, Robert Cavanaugh, the detective assigned to the case, traces the rise of the families to power and uncovers secrets and scandals aplenty. He also comes to admire—and I hope you will come to love—Jordan Whyte and Katia Morell, whose futures are irrevocably linked.

Twilight Whispers is part family saga, part murder mystery, and part love story. Re-reading this book in anticipation of its reissue, I was enthralled by its characters just as strongly as I was when the book was first published so many years ago. It stands the test of time. I highly recommend it!

Truly,
Barbara Delinsky

    " Fairly predictable ending that was foreshadowed immensely by the middle of the book. However, although predictable, it was still an enjoyable enough read. Standard Barbara Delinsky fair that is light and fairly satisfying without being mentally strenuous. "

    " a book you look forward to turning the "page". i listened to it on tape, which in my opinion brings more life to the story! there are some parts which are truly unrealistic, but then what is stranger than life? "

    " Great romance book, if you have a first love! "

    " The story was just ok. I think my biggest issue with this book was the voice on the audio CD. The reading seemed very unnatural. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Suzanne | 4/8/2011

    " i just started to listen to this book. I honestly don't think i can continue. the voice of the reader is grating. It has sort of a computerized sound to it. I am so disappointed because I love Barbara Delinsky. I just cannot get past the sound of it. I will have to pick up a copy and read it. "

    " Listened to the audio version on a recent car trip. It was a good story. A little predictable. "

    " I loved the love between Katia and Jordan. I love the family secrets! I loved the ending! Yes, I almost couldn't put this book down!!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cyndi | 5/13/2010

    " Listened to this while sick when I couldn't study any longer. It had been recommended as a good author and the book was re-released so I expected more. Characters were contrived and plot was predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 11/30/2009

    " This was one of my "I need a book for sheer entertainment" books, and it worked. It's a combination of murder mystery with a romance thrown in. It kept me guessing for quite a while as to whodunit. I eventually figured it out, but it's still a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 11/11/2009

    " Good until the corny unrealistic ending. "

    " I loved the story. Material things must be wonderful to have, but they don't always guarantee happiness. "

    " I love the suspense this book had throughout the entire book. "
